Sony PS4 20th Anniversary Competition Not run Fairly…Official!

Sony PS4 20th Anniversary Edition Competition Fails

I have previously posted on the Sony UK 20th Anniversary Compeition and how shockingly poor it was run by Game Ltd and Sony UK…

Today the complaints made to the ASA (Advertising Standards Authority) have been made public and the news has made some big articles…

I would like to thank the ASA for conducting a thorough and fair investigation and ultimately making the right finding, although I am not overly confident in Sony’s / Games version of events.  I welcome any comment from them!

I tried throughout numerous times to speak to them and never once was given the courtesy of an answer, and as a gamer for about 25 years I feel that they treated me and every other gamer like me unfairly and didn’t have the ‘balls’ to apologise to us for it.  Shame on you both for this, and shame on you both for failing to recognise it.

If you follow my twitter feed or Sony / Playstation or Game UK you will no doubt have seen the fury spread across the internet of foul play, cheating, link sharing and as Sony as so very prone too, hacking! #4thePlayers #notfortheplayers #forthecheats

On 15-19 December 2014 Playstation UK and Game UK ran a competition that meant the first 100 correct entries to this competition got a opportunity to purchase – at full price (£399) – a 20th Anniversary Edition of the console.  One of only 13,500 globally, so a very rare item indeed.  Well at least that was their plan until link sharing, web site crashing, cheating and hacking took over and left the genuine gamer with no chance whatsoever of bagging one of these much sought after machines.

Allegations flew but facts remain, users (cheaters) ended up with multiple consoles…

You will see from the screen grabs above that this user even claims to be a genuine gamer, but is so very kindly prepared to accepted £3000 for a console (but yet they mean so much to him and he is so blessed) yet towards the end of his posting he is getting rather abusive and showing his true colours!
